Edwin van der Sar states interest in Man Utd role

Manchester United have established contact with Lyon sensation Moussa Dembele.

However, former Red Devils striker Owen feels that the current crop of players at Old Trafford is nowhere near good enough for the long-term. Since the departure of Alex Ferguson in 2013, United have failed to win the English Premier League and have failed to qualify for the Uefa Champions League in three of the last six seasons.

Manchester United will attempt to get back to winning ways in the top flight when they host arch rivals Liverpool FC at Old Trafford after the worldwide break.

Speaking in an interview earlier this week, Van der Sar suggested that returning to United remained a goal of his.

"Besides my family, my wife and kids and everything I have two loves in my life", Van der Sar told Planet Futbol. He said today (Friday): "Many will argue that Manchester United's recent form may impact on their ability to replace Chevrolet but I would disagree. What they have done well is to build a brand that is in many ways, although not entirely, immune to on-field performances, which helps to explain that they posted record commercial revenues past year".

"I need to learn a little more here [at Ajax], develop myself further and eventually let's see what the future brings", Van der Sar added.

"United is a fantastic club, there's a great following all over the world. Everybody wants to play for them and eventually, work for them".

Ajax, on the other hand, are flying. Now we can't get too carried away because they won't go down, but it that was another side - maybe a newly promoted one - who couldn't find the back of the net and struggled to put Ws on the board we'd be saying something different.
